microbiome-friendly personal care
What's common between body odor and infections?
It took a stubborn UTI and excessive antibiotics to help me discover the importance of the human microbiome.
Rounds of Cipro & Keflex tried to wipe out the “bad” bacteria in my bladder and throughout my entire body.
Discovering that a healthy microbial balance generally consists of 85% “good” or beneficial bacteria and 15% “bad” or opportunistic bacteria, what could go wrong?
Nurturing my beneficial bacteria was the key to my recovery.
But when I searched for hygiene products that protect good bacteria, none were there.
A little-known fact
Cosmetic and hygiene products made at scale (even baby, personal, or “natural” products) use enough preservatives to stay germ-free even if you sneeze in the bottle.
The trouble is, 99.9% of preservatives don’t differentiate between “good” and “bad” bacteria.
Making my own
I worked with an experienced formulating chemist to combine effective ingredients in a line of products that support our natural flora instead of wiping it out. We use a unique blend of prebiotics and postbiotcs, and we do not include ingredients such as glycerin, parabens, fragrances, and strong surfactants that could adversely impact your skin microbiome.
